    TLDR Rice husk and bran extracts from the Bue Bang 3 CMU variety can potentially treat hair loss due to their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-androgenic properties.
    The study investigated the potential of extracts from the husk and bran of a local rice variety, Bue Bang 3 CMU (BB3CMU), as treatment for Androgenetic alopecia (AGA). The husk extract (BB3CMU-H) had high levels of polyphenols, contributing to its strong antioxidant activity, while the bran extract (BB3CMU-RB) was rich in tocopherols, resulting in better anti-androgenic activities through the downregulation of steroid 5α-reductase genes (SRD5A). Both extracts showed anti-inflammatory effects comparable to diclofenac sodium salt. The study concluded that the combination of BB3CMU-H and BB3CMU-RB could be utilized in cosmeceutical and pharmaceutical applications for AGA patients.
